There are so many versatile ways to use Calla lilies in your garden. It just depends on your own preferences.

They work well in garden bed groupings, in containers, and as focal points or accessory plants in a garden. Callas can also thrive as part of water gardens located around the edges in boggy soil.

Calla lilies plant well with other late spring to mid-summer flowering plants, especially if the other plants require full sun and shallow, non-invasive root systems. If you want to plant Callas in containers, they usually do better on their own with no companions.
